Rand Paul: "How Can You Ask A Man To Be The First One To Die For A Mistake?"

|

DAVID GREGORY: So you heard the Secretary of State break news this morning that the evidence, the intelligence suggests now this was a Sarin gas attack at the hands of the Assad government. The secretary saying as he just did the case is building and will continue to build. Is that enough for you to now vote to authorize the president to use force?

SEN. RAND PAUL (R-KY) No. And I think it's a mistake to get involved in the Syrian civil war. And what I would ask John Kerry is, you know, he's famous for saying, you know, how can you ask a man to be the last one to die for a mistake? I would ask John Kerry how can you ask a man to be the first one to die for a mistake?

I would ask John Kerry, do you think that it's less likely or more likely that chemical weapons will be used again if the we bomb Assad? I will ask him if it's more likely or less likely that we'll have more refugees in Jordan or that Israel might suffer an attack. I think all of the bad things you can imagine are all more likely if we get involved in the Syrian civil war.
